Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Marking and Feedback

As part of our drive to improve standards in teaching and learning here at Harris Primary Academy Chafford Hundred, we have a robust system of marking and giving feedback to the children. Teachers are taking a great deal of time to mark all work in detail, to allow children to make accelerated progress and the children are given time to respond to the marking.

Children’s work in all subjects is marked in a variety of ways including the use of stickers, peer assessment, self-assessment and in depth handwritten comments. The marking is designed to both to motivate the pupils and to identify areas of development. All stickers used clearly relate to the learning objective and/or success criteria and in English and reading lessons to the target cards. Children’s successes are marked using green ink and areas for development are marked in red ink. Red pen questions (RPQ) are set for the children to answer the following day in order to extend their learning; “Think Deeper” stickers are designed to challenge the children’s learning and move them towards ‘mastery’ in Maths.

The children are really motivated to improve their learning and here is what some of them have said:

Funmilayo (Y6) – “The red pen questions help me with my learning as they suggest ideas to improve my work which I had never thought of.”

Luca (Y5) – “I think the green and red comments are clear and I like reading the green comments for what I did well.”
